Basic Computing Skills Test
This test assesses whether your candidate can perform the absolute computing basics when working on laptops and PC’s and performing tasks in any cloud or PC based accounting software application.
Many clients use this test when recruiting entry level roles, people with limited computing experience to date, including people returning to the workforce after extended absences.
The test takes place in a simulated database/application environment where candidates must actually operate and manipulate the system to perform tasks and answer questions.
